In my humble opinion life as we know it is very much like a virtual reality video game, an interactive one.
Very much like most audio, visual games, our existence here follows a basic script.
Like any actor in a production you are more or less bound by that script. You can’t choose to be a teenage mutant ninja turtle in the power ranger
video game. You are stuck having to be one of the power rangers. You can’t become one of the bad guys as a power ranger in the power ranger game.
You are stuck having to fulfill your role along the lines of the script.
The challenge of the game is trying to play it well within the framework and binding rules of the game.
Its not about whether you win or loose the game its about how well you play the game by responding to your own unique challenges within the game.
Though at times it seems like the rules are unfair or stacked against you or even that its just a really stupid game, with a really bad script and
really awful roles you can’t simply for the sake of yourself as one participant decide to turn off the game or simply rewrite the script and the
roles and the terms for everyone.
That would be cheating as well as a failure to play the game well based on what the game is. Even though you may have tired of the game, and even
substantial numbers of others have tired of the game, a lot of people still nonetheless love the game.
Just like when some people play a video game they really enjoy they have a tendency to become totally immersed in the game to the point that they
forget everything else and ignore everything else and begin to believe the game is so real and so important that nothing else matters, this too is the
nature of the game we call life.
The two legal definitions of a person are 1. An actor wearing a mask, and 2., a straw man.
The oldest legal definition of a person is an actor wearing a mask.
As strange as this might sound, and as important as this game of life seems, and the people you love, and the things you have accomplished and won,
loved and lost, the reality is that do you remember much about your 261st game of Donkey Kong?
When you were playing it there was nothing more important at that time, but by the next day, or a game or two later, you forgot much of what you did
in your 261st game of Donkey Kong because in comparison to the rest of the game we call life it wasn’t all that important come the next day or the
next game, because after all it was really just a game.
Our lives here on this earth follow a script as part of a game, a game we chose to play of our own volition. We are all immersed in that game and the
game is very important to us, and part of how the game is played that makes it a desirable game for us to commit ourselves to it, is we do totally
immerse ourselves in it for the purpose of making it as interactive, and as real and as challenging as it possibly could be.
Yet as we each leave this game in our time, in our own way, to our own ends and fashion it is very much like turning off that video game of Donkey
Kong and then resuming a much broader and wider game here on earth, except when we exit this game we are then entering a much broader and wider
existence within the universe that will in fact in comparison make much of what we have done in this game seem trivial because after all it is just a
Some times games can be very hard and being stuck in a certain role at times too can be anything from downright boring, to downright frustrating, to
painful, and scary and a host of unpleasant things. Yet the thing is about a good game, you really don’t know how it is actually going to turn out
until you get to the end. It is usually darkest right before the light and I don’t think there is hardly anyone of us that doesn’t enjoy a
pleasant surprise. We do though have to endure some unpleasant surprise to know and appreciate what a pleasant surprise is by way of contrasts.
The game is designed for those surprises to both challenge and reward and discipline us at times. If we actually stepped outside the boundaries of the
game, to the extent we actually connected with our true selves and our higher selves, and one another’s true selves and higher selves, not only
would the game of life be less fun and challenging to play there would not be much point to playing it.
Locked inside you is the entire script, as well as who you really are, as well as what the universe really is, and you can reconnect with it, if you
really wish too, in fact you can if you choose modulate right out of this plane of existence.
I can tell you though that once you do unlock the door to the script and your inner self, and you then choose because of the people you love here, and
the hopes that you have to not exit the playing board, that playing the game of life becomes more like a job, the job of an actor, stuck within the
confines of a script, whether you like the script or not, and playing the game of life as a result becomes much less challenging, and rewarding.
It’s like looking at your opponents cards, or starting a good movie at the last 10 minutes and then having to rewind to the beginning.
In short a lot of people are frustrated, and scared, and uncertain at this very challenging phase and stage of the game.
A lot of people are in fact so frustrated, and so scared, and so uncertain they are not in fact sure whether this game is worth playing all the way
That’s bad gamesmanship! Its not whether you win or loose the game, it really is all about how you play it.
Its important to remember that each and every one of us chose and volunteered to play the game and before we chose to play it we read the box and what
the game was about and choose a role of our own choosing based on some appeal of that role and the challenges of the role and the rewards of playing
that role, as well as the challenges and rewards of the script.
Patience is a virtue, stay in the game, play it to the best of your ability, if you don’t really have someone to love, then at least try to love the
one you are with and the people around you and when the game is over, no matter how it turns out, you will in fact be happy that you played this game
Remember everything happens for a reason, and to everything there is a season!
